Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here. Insufficient coolant temperature such as a stuck open thermostat would cause the engine to run to rich but would not cause a no start. If you having a no start issue its not likely related. In order for the engine to start and run you need good spark to the spark plugs, injector pulse and proper fuel pressure. Can you check each one of these things to determine which your lacking when it will not start and post back with this, I will help you determine the cause.
